Do you want to see the thinnest eyeliner ever?

Do you want to see the thinnest eyeliner ever? Of course you do.

The Blinc Ultrathin Liquid Eyeliner Pen has a 0.00876mm brush that delivers the slimmest and most precise liquid liner.

It is really amazing and pictures hardly do it justice, but if you want to check out how teeny tiny this liner is, head on over to Pretty Chatty where you can read a full review!

Make Up For Ever Smoky Stretch Mascara Review

Hello long lashes! I recently tried the new Make Up For Ever Smoky Stretch Mascara and it really delivers on the stretch factor. My lashes are long, dark, and totally defined. I love how this mascara goes on smoothly and the formula is amazing!

The brush is so tiny and the bristles catch every singe lash so you get a great coat of coverage in one layer. I loved this mascara from the second I saw the brush, and it really gave me gorgeous lashes.

I featured a full before and after look at my lashes over on Pretty Chatty, so check out the post here to see what this mascara can do to my limp lashes.

Get a lipstick like Britt from The Bachelor

Did you watch The Bachelor this season? I sure did! I love romance and the drama in the house.

This season a lot of the drama surrounded Britt, who may or may not become The Bachelorette in a few weeks. Although her fake tears and dramatic exit got a lot of attention, there was one other thing that Britt was known for. That hot pink lipstick!

Check out this article I wrote over on an up-and-coming blog, Pretty Chatty, and see the perfect dupe to match Britt’s bright lipstick! Read the full article here.

Maybelline Asia Baby Lips

I recently did a swap with my wonderful new friend, Vanessa, who is living in Hong Kong right now. She told me about some really neat Maybelline products and was kind enough to send me some really cool things to blog about. One of the most interesting things Vanessa told me about were the Maybelline Asia Baby Lips, which are totally different than the ones we have in North America.

These Maybelline Baby Lips have completely different packaging than the ones in Canada. The Asian ones are packaged like regular chapstick tubes, instead of the bigger cylinder shaped ones. They also have different colours and flavours, like these two Vanessa sent me, Watermelon Smooth and Berry Crush.

Aside from the different look, these were pretty similar to the Baby Lips I know and love. The formula was soft and smooth, and the colour was light enough for everyday use but can be layered for a more opaque look. The Berry one was more pigmented and is a shade I can see myself wearing frequently.

I love that I have these unique Baby Lips to join my ever-growing collection. They’re cute and convenient to keep in my purse, and have a light sweet scent.

My Favourite Makeup Remover Right Now

Have you ever tried the L’Oreal Paris Sublime Soft Gentle Micellar Solution makeup remover? This remover is so soft on my skin and doesn’t leave it oily or dry.

I only use makeup remover for a bold lipstick or a lot of eye makeup, but my pet peeve is when the remover leaves my skin feeling oily after. Then I have to wash my face after and it seems like so many extra steps. I also hate when makeup remover leaves the delicate skin near my eyes all red and dry. With the Sublime Soft remover I don’t have to deal with either of these problems.

This remover is fragrance free and hypoallergenic, so even the most sensitive skin can use it. It’s smooth without being oily, and leaves skin feeling soothed instead of dry. What more could you want in a makeup remover?

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss

The OCC Stained Glosses are high-pigment stains that are a little wet and sticky to apply but once they dry they’re like paint. They stick to lips and deliver opaque colour and a nice gloss.
